Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic treatments performed all around the world. This is because they are a way to soften lines and wrinkles on the face, caused by muscle movement.
The procedure takes minutes, has a short downtime, and the onset of action is from 2-14 days and lasts 3-4 months, longer if a person has had previous treatments.
Antiwrinkle injections are very versatile and may help some patients manage:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines (between the eyebrows)
- Asymmetry/ an Asymmetrical smile
- Excessive sweating on the hands, feet and armpits
- Upper lip lines and down-turned corners of the mouth
How long does the treatment take?
You will have a consultation to determine the areas you would like to treat and your ideal outcome. The treatment itself then takes about 10 minutes.
When will I see results?
Peak results are seen after 14 days, when you will be invited to return for a follow-up appointment. A complimentary top-up is offered at this appointment if required.
Is there any downtime?
After antiwrinkle injections, you need to avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol on the same day. You must avoid lying down for 4 hours after the treatment.
How long does the treatment last?
At what age is anti-wrinkle treatment typically recommended?
As each patient’s situation is unique, individual assessment is conducted to determine the appropriateness of anti-wrinkle treatment. Typically, patients start noticing the emergence of wrinkles in their early thirties, mainly due to a decline in collagen production. Addressing fine lines at an early stage can help prevent their progression into deeper wrinkles over time. To prevent the exacerbation of fine lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging, it is always advisable to prioritize UV protection for the skin.
Will I be able to move my face?
When anti-wrinkle injections are applied correctly, the natural movement and appearance of the face are preserved but appear refreshed and relaxed.
